Hi! Another question from someone who understands 0 genetics but likes to dream!!

If a pearl or falb-fee gets crossed with a wild coloured blue-laying (celadon) hen, could there be pearl/falb-fee offspring that lays blue eggs? Or does that require another few generations of hidden gene shenanigans? (Or maybe it's not even possible? )
I don't think I've ever seen a pearl/falb blue laying hen..

Thanks!

Hello! Welcome to the site!

Im not really very well versed in genetics either but its my understanding the CE gene is very reccesive and that means alot of back crossing and little genetic diversity. The same goes with some of the nicer colors and patterns and that could make it a hard project to work with. However. It might be doable if you spent years on the breeding project.
